SkyCode Horoscopes for March 13-19, 2017


Codes to unlock the stars, not to be locked down by them.

“Get to know ya”

 

We might feel a great rush to intimacy as eloquent Mercury speeds up next to amorous Venus in Aries on Saturday. Often words and feelings flow with lots of flourish. But they have little follow through.

You might experience this as everyone in your crew being excited about an after-party that a friend of a friend knows about. But it’s hard to reach one of those friends. Or you chat the night away on your first date in months. But your date wants to rush into bed before you’re even sure you like him or her. How do we survive the inevitable end of such beautiful yet flawed moments?

Fortunately, we have a tense square off between the honest Sun and somber Saturn on Friday before we’re strung along by the beautiful music and words that Venus and Mercury make. We have a chance to ground ourselves before lifting off into whatever’s “lovely.” Get the details that matter in the moment, like news of a possible after-party before you go out. It might also mean allowing a beautiful date night to be its own gem. You can stand rooted in your integrity enough to know and then say when such a wondrous night must end “right.” You can hone truth and beauty in integrity.

But you can also find intimacy. Genuine intimacy is in the work, not only in pretty words or notions. It’s casting a mold of sincerity and sound expectations for our soft, mushy ideals and intentions. It’s bulking up some muscle beyond touching on the surface. That’s really getting to know someone.

Read on for the SkyCodes for your particular moon, ascendant, Sun or key planet of your chart.

PISCES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

Last Sunday’s Virgo full moon will likely continue to keep you full for this last week of your birthday season. Allow yourself to relish how full you are. This includes the expectations, fears, optimism, dread, and excitement. All of it. Trying to piece through that tightly packed bundle of feeling will only weaken your vim and vigor. One of your most powerful abilities is to contain emotional contradictions. Your churning waters are what keep you afloat and rising. Don’t feel guilty about this. You don’t have to express all you feel to everyone. But, at least, honor what you feel within.

Affirmation:
I know my churning emotional conflicts can also make me strong.

ARIES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

Think twice before you attempt to convince someone else to change how she or he does something. It’s possible that you’re confusing what you like with what others should like. This could incline you to skew facts. The worse part is how damn charming and convincing you can be about it all. So, you might as well be clear on your motivations. Check the facts. But more important, make sure the person is even open to changing things up. You might be wasting your time.

Affirmation:
I am a powerful agent of change in the lives others who are ready for it.

TAURUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

Rolling up your sleeves to do some work for a friend or a group effort will say more than any eloquence you can muster now. Yet, that doesn’t mean that an encouraging word won’t also go a long way. Somehow, you might think the better course is to be hard ass. But that’s likely based on the feeling that folks aren’t pulling their own weight. Yes, some people might just be lazy. You don’t have to fret about them, though. You can rake in more of the right people with a nudge than trying poking and prodding the wrong folks. Help the willing, not worry about the wily.

Affirmation:
I use words and work to encourage and support the willing.

GEMINI
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

Be attentive to follow through. But don’t sacrifice common courtesy to complete compelling tasks. Use your gift for gab to charm and disarm others rather than combat them. Most forms of argument and debate won’t be very productive. (Yes, even less than usual and without the fun of sharp comebacks.) Make someone work to keep up with your ideas and task-oriented plans if he wants to lug his ego into a project or conversation. He’ll drop the conceit. Or fall back altogether to make way for folks who will step and keep up.

Affirmation:
I can charm and disarm others to follow through on important work to be done.

CANCER
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Moon in birth chart

What sounds good in the boardroom often might not translate into something practical at your desk. So, if you’re having trouble with work, it might not all be your fault. But be very careful not to take your frustrations out on others at work…or at home. Keep courtesy common and flowing. Passions will rise. Your voice shouldn’t. Slow your roll. Use your passion instead to solve constructively and creatively problems with your workflow or routines. No need to argue a point when you can show it by introducing something better.

Affirmation:
I create and show solutions to problems rather than argue with others about them.

LEO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Sun in birth chart

You will likely be a source of inspiration for others. Even when you’re not trying. Encouraging words and ideas will just flow. You might also seek out inspiring words to stay motivated yourself. Draw on what you find most beautiful and elevating. You’ll most likely discover your renewed vigor in books you’ve already read or movies you’ve viewed before. You might even find cheer in your old journals or social media posts. But the inspiration is there for you to give.

Affirmation:
I renew my own inspiration to stay inspiring for others.

VIRGO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

It might be hard to cope with the ebb and flow of your own energy and motivation. Perhaps you long for constancy that you’ve only known in short bursts. Yet, you’ve conned yourself into thinking that you’ve had that constancy for longer periods. So, you might beat yourself up for not staying on top of everything. Like before. Before when, though? Reminds me of those people who thought they had happy childhoods until they actually went to therapy. Our memories are tricky. Trust and honor your present without beating yourself up with an unexamined and perhaps misremembered past.

Affirmation:
I find pockets of smooth motion forward even as my energy and motivation changes.

LIBRA
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

The words might drip out first. Then trickle. And, finally, flow. But you’ll eventually reel in the right words that have been swimming around in your mind to say to someone. Your job is to commit to writing your thoughts down as they come. Use Evernote, a napkin or even a text to yourself (or the person) to get them down. But don’t let life, work demands, or even fatigue toss you along without hooking those thoughts to the feelings you’ve had. They’re important because you and your feelings matter. And someone else needs to hear them.

Affirmation:
I commit to finding and sharing the words that capture what I truly feel.

SCORPIO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

Buy something used if you don’t need to buy it new. This will help your wallet, obviously. But allowing something to recycle is your way of honoring “the circle of life.” Check yourself if your ego bristles at having what seems less than the best. Saving money to splurge more elsewhere is just good sense. We’re not talking about you buying recycled underwear here! To know what you can do without or do more on the cheap shows that you have your priorities in order.

Affirmation:
I save and reuse instead of listen to my ego’s need to splurge on something new and unnecessary.

SAGITTARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

Rejection is often a chalky and bitter pill to swallow. Yet it can still be medicine. The only shock you might feel is wondering why you need medicine at all now. You probably don’t feel off. But some medicine is preventive. A setback will likely inspire you to find better, leaner and more persuasive words to convince someone of your heart’s desire. Self-pity won’t help, though. Take your knocking as a wake-up call to redouble your efforts, not completely doubt them.

Affirmation:
I use rejection as an injection for improvement and innovation.

CAPRICORN
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

In some way, big or small, communicate in some old-fashioned way. You’re not necessarily doing this for sentimental reasons. Changing up how you communicate might also change what you say and decide to share. What if you sent a postcard instead of tagged someone in social media post? Or wrote a letter instead of a DM? Or g-chatted your significant other like you used to do before you could just text or call? Again, what you change up isn’t as important. Just switch things up to see what’s switched on for you.

Affirmation:
I switch up how I communicate to see what’s switched on when I do.

AQUARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

Maintaining your computer can teach important life lessons. For instance, many people don’t know that having several programs open with many icons on your desktop can slow your computer down a lot. Clear away the clutter and you’ll speed up your machine. Life can be much like that. Perhaps you’ve had too many loose and open ends with too much on your mind to do. Free yourself of the clutter and re-charge your life. You don’t have to rush to fill any voids. Relish the openness. Flirt with possibilities rather than fling yourself into something else. You’ll naturally find your way to more excitement soon enough.

Affirmation:
I clear away clutter and close up loose ends to have more room to roam.
